    WILL EISNER (1917-2005) • New York Yankees/”Expression of Emotions” panels (2004/2008)

    Will Eisner wrote and illustrated three classic educational books about the medium he devoted his life to: Comics & Sequential Art (1985), Graphic Storytelling (1996) and Expressive Anatomy (2004). Eisner wrote and penciled the latter before he died. Expressive Anatomy was published posthumously, in 2008, by W.W. Norton with the aid of Peter Poplaski, a highly respected artist who had long worked with Eisner on many of his Spirit comic books, magazines (i.e. The Spirit #30 “jam” cover), and several graphic novel covers for Kitchen Sink Press. This excellent example from Expressive Anatomy depicts “The Expression of Emotions” using a just-fired New York Yankee, who can’t contain his feelings. The original art is on vellum expertly traced from Eisner’s roughs. A sharp photocopy of the roughs are included so that the new owner can carefully compare the before & after.

    Medium/Size/Condition: The original panels are drawn with brush and ink on vellum measuring 8 x 5.75 inches. There is some white-out but the art is remarkably clean.  The original art comes with a photocopy of Eisner’s hand-scripted and roughed out images.

    Price: $300 for the lot of 2.
